Warwick Davis’s Big Night

Same Difference

I’m off to set this for recording! 9pm Thursday BBC2.

Actor Warwick Davis is planning a revolution: he wants to establish Britain’s first ever theatre company for reduced height actors.

Normally, these actors are stuck with pantomime or ‘creature work’ in films and TV. But now in a fun, insightful and touching film directed by award winning filmmaker Ursula MacFarlane, Warwick invests his own money and time to form a company that takes on the classics in mainstream theatres up and down the land. Will the specially sized set work? And how will the audience respond to a classic farce played entirely by reduced height actors? In a film that also explores the challenges little people face in an average-height world, including a serious operation Warwick supports his wife Sam through, cameras follow this make or break time for Warwick, the cast and his family.
